The gene for human growth hormone (HGH) can be inserted into the genome of bacteria. The bacteria that take up the HGH gene can transcribe and translate this gene into small quantities of this protein. How is this technology possible?

    The genomes of bacteria and humans are very similar.
    Bacteria employ the same genetic code as humans.
    Humans require HGH to grow normally.
    Reproductive cloning is possible only in bacteria.
